*Enter the giveaway by Thursday, if you want some vintage patterns*
On Sunday, I trekked south to Vogue Fabrics; when traffic is reasonable it's only about 20 minutes away and it was on a Sunday at noon. I wanted to find some silk to make some blouses. After a disappointing trip to the mall a few weekends ago, I decided I need to make myself some basics. I just cannot justify paying $90 bucks for a silk blouse at Banana Republic, when I can make one myself...though making basics is a boring task.
The black and white print is a yard of silk for some kind of cute blouse. I have numerous blouse patterns, so no EXCUSES, Molly! Vogue didn't have any basic black or white silk for whatever reason, but they do have a section for Black Basics and White Basics. I found two super cheap, polyester fabrics that feel like silk. Even my nice cutting lady though it was silk before she looked at the tag.
